of budget battles with the obama administration. >> reporter: republican congressman paul ryan said republicans and conservatives will need prudence to deal with president obama's second term. part of that, he says, is showing voters what the president's agenda looks like once it's been implemented. >> in the president's first term we argued against big government in theory. and in his second term, we'llng practice. obama care is no longer a 2,000 page bill. now it's 13,000 pages of regulations and its growing. it's being implemented. this year the law will restrict our ability to use flexible spending accounts. it will raise taxes on life saving medical devices. >> reporter: ryan, possible a presidential contender in 2016, said republicans should be prepared for the president to try to "de legitimize them," but urged them to be smart. >> we'll need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we'll have to reject the president's proposals. that time might come more than once. sometimes we'll have to make them better. the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyie

full week into president obama's second term, and a theme already seems to be emerging from republicans, including john boehner. it's that the president is on a mission to annihilate the gop and push a far left agenda, and they point to his inaugural speech as evidence where the president said things like, well, this. >> preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action, medicare and medicaid and social security. these things do not sap our nation. they strengthen us. we will respond to the threat of climate change. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> joining me now bill schneider, resident fellow third way, washington think tank and tara mcguinnes senior vice president of communications at the center for american progress. hello to both of you. >> hey, thanks for having us. >> bill, let's start with the speech. not just conservatives here who say that it was progressive. calling it the most liberal speech of obama's presidency. did the president miss a chance here to reach out to
with the republicans. let me ask you a question, can you name the one bipartisan accomplishment of president obama? >> yeah, it's called getting re-elected. >> okay! the fact is, if you look at where the country is today, the clear majority of americans, larger percentage of americans voted for obama than past presidents. but in terms of policy, i am not going to say it's hunky dory. it's not. there are serious divisions, i saw with my own eyes on the hill. but the reality is that you have a republican party, since the tea party came in. and you have seen this with speaker boehner's inability to control his own caucus. so how do you negotiate -- how does president obama negotiate with speaker boehner, when speaker boehner can't negotiate because he doesn't know what his own members are going to do on a particular issue? all of that said, you know, we have big problems in this country on the fiscal side, whether it's immigration, dealing with gun control. sooner later, particularly on the fiscal issues, you fix them or they fix you. i think there is a path for compromise. but it all depends on what
news poll shows 84% of democrats approve of president obama's job performance, but just 11% of republicans say he's doing a good job. that's a 73-point gap, tied with one other president, george w. bush. another poll shows since president obama was re-elected, just a third of voters think he has been more bipartisan. but the majority, 55% say he's been more confrontational. does this mean nothing can really get done that's meaningful in washington to solve our nation's national debt and help the economy? we have a former white house political director under president george w. bush and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. >> great to be here. >> eric: matt, let me start with you. how do we get here? >> well, you know, i think about the president i served, george w. bush. when he came to office, he really was concerned about trying to if i understand a way to reach across the aisle because clearly bill clinton left the presidency with high numbers. he worked with ted kennedy. he worked with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11

obama forces republicans to blink. >> their policy they call it the boehner rule. for every dollar increase in this debt ceiling we have to have a dollar in cuts to match that. the president said earlier this month, i'm not doing that anymore. we are not going to keep negotiating over the debt ceiling. this is our obligation over. the republicans have conceded the president had won the argument and are now -- this week they ebb extended the debt ceiling with no accompanied spending cuts. the republicans will cede that issue to him. >> your latest article, mitt romney i'm not going away. tell me. >> certainly was a little different. he came in to toub this weekend for the alfalfa dinner. we hadn't seen a lot from mitt romney since he lost in november. he to told donors that it was purposeful. he is not going anywhere. he will be active in 2013 and 2014s and in terms of 2016. although some sources said his personal ambition for public office are over. >> good to see you both today. thank you so much. >> thank you, t.j. >>> to the weather, the midwest is facing an ice threat. winter s

think that is sort of all the republicans did for two years of obama. it goes to the question -- you contain multitudes, so you are circling, but your point about >> [inaudible] >> yeah, but your point about not having an alternative to dodd-frank. republicans were very good at saying there were going to make obamacare obama's waterloo and stop these things in their tracks, and when they did not, they did not have something else to say, but one person did have something else to say was paul ryan, and he was rewarded for it with all levels of media attention, massive popularity within the republican party, and the vice presidential slot on the national ticket. when i look at other rising stars in congress and around the country and i see them talking about the idea of new ideas without talking about the ideas themselves, i say, it isn't the lesson of ryan that if you talk about the specific ideas, there's more to be gained than lost? this is my personal biggest disappointment with the republican party of the last few years. where are the policy entrepreneurs in the party itself? i thi
republicans to choose their bathses careful nepresident obama's second term. speaking to republicans today, ryan said the party should end internal disputes, warning that president obammal try to divide them. and republicans saying that they should reject some of the president's proposals and work to improve on others. the obama administration wants $32 million to train african troops in the fight against extremists holed up in mali and considering providing air tankers to assist french fighter jets. our government is helping, transporting french troops and equipment to mali. france has 2400 forces there and says it wants african nations to take the lead. now back to "geraldo at large." for the latest headlines, go to >> we couldn't come do an agreement on it. i mean, it was 9-1. one guy wouldn't give. >> the hangup was everyone couldn't get past her criminal side of her life. which really had nothing to do with this case. and there was a couple that couldn't get beyond that she had lied. >> geraldo: on friday, a federal judge declared a mistrial in the defamation suit filed b
security and medicare? does president obama want to destroy the republican party? >> obviously, republicans want to make sure these entitlement programs are here for future generations, right now, for every dollar we spend on the young people, we are spending $4 on seniors. right now, in medicare, the average person pays for 1/3 of the cost of the medicare program, dick durbin, for what it has been worth has been one of those people who is willing to sit down and solve the problem and i congratulate him on that. as far as the president's goal of annihilating the republican party, i will say that i was glad to see that the house was unified behind something recently as it relates to the fiscal issues and i think that is a backstop to that. the fact is, one thing the president didn't mention in his speech, was the major fiscal issue that our nation faces. it was everything but that. and, to me, that was disheartening. it is the one issue that, before anything else, we need to put in the rearview mirror to make our country stronger. >> chris: senator durbin, you are a member of a bipartisan gr

. women, 55%. president obama won women. obam yet the republican party doesn't want to be the party that goes after segments of society. how do you attract latinos? how do you attract young people without sort of catering in a way republicans say they don't want to. >> in terms of luatinos and asians and immigrants, i think we fell into the trap of looking at the numbers too literally. so, look, latinos want jobs and we want education and we want health care and immigration was number five or number six, but what they sense is that we don't welcome them and we have to be the party that celebrates immigration. every time the president talks about business, there's always a but in the sentence. when you hear some republicans talk about immigration, there is always a but in the sentence. people sense that, they have a gut feel for that. we've got to make people feel welcome. >> so just kind of going around the table. is the problem the messengers? is the problem the message? is the problem policy? >> i think it's a combination. the core principles we have are right and part of the prob

. he's quite likely the future of the republican party. but if you go back three years ago, president obama himself publicly said that the ryan proposal on medicare was serious and legitimate. the president is playing -- and not the republicans aren't. they play a lot of politics. but the president is playing politics too. when i talked to the president six months ago about medicare, he said the spending trajectory is untenable. and so he knows there needs to be a fix in this area. and what's the shame in all of this is that they can't kind of sit down and work it out, because, you know, if you were the negotiator up at camp david, you'd be able to do it. >> well, one of the problems is they're not at camp david. they are not sitting down together. but the state of the union i think should not be viewed as -- rather the inaugural address should not be viewed as a state of the union speech. this is not the place where he was laying it out. i'm told by white house officials that he put on the table for medicare is still on the table. he wants to negotiate it. and i think paul ryan will
democrats want to paint solidly blue. i asked chief political correspondent candy crowley what republicans need to do to handle immigration. >> this is an issue that republicans have to get off the table. more than 70% of hispanics in the last election voted for president obama. that's not sustainable for the republican party if they want to win a national election there is unanimity among republicans that something has to give on immigration reform. i think you will see immigration reform this year, i think you will see some form, call it amnesty, a pathway to citizenship, something that allows those who are in this country without documents to get into the legal lane, some way, some. how >> gun control that's certainly on the agenda. dianne feinstein of california offered her legislation this week to ban assault weapons but the turnout at a gun control rally yesterday in d.c. was tepid, and democrats are hedging on this. is anything really going to get done on this issue? >> i think something will get done but the idea of assault weapons ban may be an overreach, not just because there ar
. as republicans, we have criticized president obama for not agreeing in -- believing in an increase in this. not only american exceptionalism, but we also define it. during the inauguration, i heard a lot of commentators talk about a peaceful transfer of power that we have got in this country. even as we must never take for granted the peaceful transition we have, america is not great because of the design of our government. america is not exceptional because of that. the genius of america is in our strength and power in growth that comes from individual actions. [applause] government does not order greatness. it cannot command outcomes. individuals, taking risks, building businesses, inventing things, and passing immutable values from one generation to the next, that is the root of america's greatness. [applause] and that is the mission as we build a new republican party. away from managing government and towards a mission of growth. it falls to us to show the younger generations the wisdom and the great benefits of the american path. it falls to us to unleash a new dawning of the american
. so we're seeing an overlay of this, you know, one side the republicans, the other side the democrats. and i must say post-election, president obama has become more aggre aggressive. military spending, they don't agree with what taxation should be, title, on and on and on. gun control, they don't agree. and on the other hand, you know, we have this sort of slow economy that makes it more difficult to cut a deal. and i should add to that, a constitutional crisis in a way because this whole debt ceiling has been a weapon that the house of representatives have used to gain power. it's not just the republicans versus the democrats. it's the house versus the president. i don't know how it the play out. >> meanwhile, the marketses are on fire. the s&p 500 hitting a new five-year high along with the dow jones industrial average. what is driving the stocks and do you think it's sustainable for the year? >> the part of it that i understand is that some of the risk has been pulled out of the market. so most recently that the u.s. has got three months before the next thing happening. some of the
